tomorrow night, i'll talk to senator john mccain with his battle with president obama over benghazi. that's all for us. that's all for us. "ac 360" starts now. -- captions by vitac -- >> good evening. we start every night like we always do "keeping them honest." we begin tonight looking for facts not offering opinions or trying to play favorites. not supporting democrats or republicans. you can find that on plenty of other cable channels. just finding the truth, finding the facts. tonight the focus on what played out in washington today. two foes back at it again. the battle over benghazi, the attack that killed four americans. senator mccain has maintained either white house negligence or a cover up. today sep tor mccain took it a step further saying that because of susan rice's narrative role
1:01 am
following the attacks, he and senator mccain would block any effort to promote ms. rice to secretary of state, should hillary clinton leave that post. president obama took the opportunity to fire back directly at the senator. >> if senators mccain and graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous. >> senator mccain heard that remark and 73 minutes later took to the floor of the u.s. senate to respond. watch. >> mr. president, four brave americans died.
1:02 am
it has now been eight weeks, and the american people have received nothing but contradictory statements from all levels of our government. this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or engage ed d in a cover-up, neither of which are accept toable to -- acceptable to the american people. >> keeping then honest, more than two months after the attack on benghazi there, are still some serious questions about the timeline of the events and unanswered questions in the days and weeks that followed. specifically, why didn't the president call it an act of terrorism the president said it was quote too early to know exactly how this came about. or during an appearance on "the view" on september 25th. when asked if it was terrorism,
1:03 am
the president said that they were still doing an investigation. how the president described it five days after the attacks. >> putting together the best information we have, is the current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. >> ambassador rice blaming the killings on that hateful anti muslim video. that turned out to be wrong. some very legitimate questions that senator mccain is asking he might get answers to when they hold hearings. as for holding up ms. rice's nomination of secretary of state over this. a few people in washington are tripped up on false intelligence in the past. people like condoleeza rice. who as national security adviser back in 2003, made the case for war in iraq, insisting that saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. >> it is time to stop the deceit and time to stop trying to
1:04 am
deceive the world, and to offer up his weapons of mass destruction so that he can be disarmed. the overwhelming bulk of the evidence there, not about a data point here or there, but about what saddam hussein was doing, but that he had weapons of mass destruction. >> right up to the end, saddam hussein continued to harbor ambitions to threaten the world with weapons off mass destruction and to hide illegal weapons activities. >> no nuclear weapons, no wmd turned up in iraq. condoleezza rice went on to become secretary of state in the bush administration and mccain and other republicans had no problem supporting her, in spite she fell for bad intelligence. >> condoleezza rice is a great american success story this is what america is all about. a young woman who grew up in a segregated part of america, where americans were not treated equally, to rise to the position
1:05 am
of secretary of state. we should have been celebrating i believe this remarkable american success story. also, i thought that some of the remarks, and i'm not going to mention my colleague's names, i thought some of the remarks aimed at her during her hearings challenged her integrity. we can disagree on policy and we can disagree on a lot of things, but it's very clear condoleezza rice is a person of integrity, and, yes, i see this some lingering bitterness over a very tough campaign. i hope it dissipates soon. >> senator john mccain joins me now. senator, you said today you plan to do everything in your power to block susan rice's nomination to be secretary of state if president obama nominates her. supporters say she was simply repeating the earlier assessment that she had been given by the intelligence community about the benghazi attack, and a spokesman for the national defense confirm
1:06 am
ed in late september that we disseminated the information, and it was only later the intelligence assessment changed. do you not believe the dni? >> well, first of all, talking points came from the white house, not from the dni. but, second of all, it was obvious within 24 hours that the station chief from the cia said this was a terrorist attack. obvious to one and all that this was not a "spontaneous demonstration." in real time, they saw there was no demonstration. the -- ms. rice, i hope saw am -- ambassador rice i hope saw when i was on "face the nation" that immediately after she spoke, the head of the libyan national assembly, the president of it, said that this was an al qaeda attack, and she continued to tell all of the world through all of the talk shows that it was quote a spontaneous demonstration sparked by a video. that is not competence in my
1:07 am
view. she has never to this point decla declared that she was wrong. and the president is the one who is ultimately responsible, but that is not an acceptable person in my vow to be secretary of state. >> but the dni seemed to be backing her up, saying we disseminated the intelligence to the executive branch, to members of congress. do you think they are falling on their swords, you think they didn't do that? possible they were just wrong and gave out the early assessment and faulty intelligence? >> the dni is saying one thing. the state department -- or the other -- the cia station chief within 24 hours said it was an al qaeda affiliated attack. didn't she have this information? the white house gave the talking points, the president incredibly
1:08 am
over two weeks later continued to call this a -- a spontaneous demonstration that sparked this attack, which by then he must have known was totally false. he said that to the united nations. there is a lot of things wrong here and she is part of it, and she gave deceptive information to the american people when there was clearly counterinformation that affirmed this was a terrorist attack, orchestrated by an al qaeda affiliated organization. >> supporters of ambassador rice compared her comments made to comments that condoleezza rice made when she was national security adviser in 2002 when she made a very public case for the iraq war saying that saddam hussein was pursuing weapons of mass destruction, and that intelligence was incorrect. when she was nominated for secretary of state, many republicans spoke out strongly for her, saying she was a success story, anyone who would challenge her is based on politics. they say there is a double standard. to that, you say what?
1:09 am
>> i appreciate them saying that, the fact is, four americans died. four americans died and overwhelming evidence to the contrary that this was a clearly -- clearly an al qaeda affiliated attack that murdered four americans, that didn't need to happen. there were advanced warnings that were sent on august 15th and 16th. they said that it would -- it was a case of concerted attack, they could not guarantee that they could defend the consulate. there was many warnings, there were previous attacks -- all of that goes to the state department and to this administration and our ambassador to the u.n. it raises a question, what was she doing out there anyway? the american people were told, and given false information when there was clearly information to counter that immediate ly. people don't go to spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades.
1:10 am
>> i just want to push back a little bit on the condoleezza rice comments. >> sure. sure. >> thousands were killed in the war in iraq and people did not -- republicans did not hold her accountable for misleading statements she made in the runup to the war when she was being nominated for secretary of state. >> um-hum. and i respect that opinion and that view. i think these are two entirely different cases, but somebody wants to make that case and tell the american people that it was okay to go out and tell them that this was a spontaneous demonstration sparked by a hateful video, that they are qualified to be our secretary of state, then they are entitled to that view. i'm entitled to my role of that advise and consent in the united states senate, and my advise and consent and my constitutional obligation is that i will not vote and i will not agree to her appointment as secretary of state. >> senator mccain, i appreciate your time, sir. thank you.
1:11 am
>> thank you for having me on. >> all right, digging deeper, let's bring in senior congressional correspondent david bash, gloria borgen, and david gergen. dana, you have covered senator mccain for years and covered the presidential campaign in 2008 against president obama and what do you make of this? something personal or political? >> i have been half joking all day, that to borrow a phrase from the president, 2008 is calling and it wants its presidential campaign back. you can see and hear both -- in both men's expressions and in the tones of their voices that there is a lot going on there beneath the surface between the two that's probably not resolved from their battle of four years ago. so in that case it is personal and political. it is personal for john mccain in another way to be fair, because he knew ambassador stevens quite well and he had been visiting with him, and he feels this need to avenge his death and make it right. he is on a mission that is definitely personal, but it is also political in another way in
1:12 am
that you heard from the republicans during the presidential campaign, this one, that they were frustrated that mitt romney didn't talk about this enough, because they felt that it was a way to get at president obama's leadership and i talked to the republicans who admit that they were trying to make it an issue now. >> gloria, you saw a different president obama. >> yeah, he really pushed back on john mccain and lindsey graham and called it outrageous that they would make these charges about her, that she knowingly disseminated false information. he said look, if you have a problem, take it up with me. in his own way, he was very testy today, and in his own way, what we saw was that he was saying to john mccain, you want to make this an issue, buddy? dare me to nominate her. it really sounded like in reading between the lines that this is something he's interested in doing this is a political fight that's not going to go away. one thing that struck me, the
1:13 am
president talked about going after her, because she's "an easy target." well, what does that mean? because she's a woman, the only one out there using the information she had? it's interesting to me. i'm not quite sure what the president was talking about. >> you know, david, so many question questions about the attacks in benghazi, and it is surprising that they are going after ambassador rice and not secretary clinton? >> no, i'm not surprised, and i do think underneath here, there isn't as much confidence with susan rice as with republicans. they favor john kerry as the next secretary of state. they work well with him, and they believe he has requisite experience. i don't think that it has to do with the womanhood, but goes down to the confidence question.
1:14 am
this is a nasty fight. could could get very personal, it could go mano-o-mano. it is very personal. we are trying to create a sense of bipartisanship to get this calmed down. i think the president would send quiet emissaries up to capitol hill to see if he has the votes to beat a filibuster, and i think she would have to do some private rounds that will help a lot in defusing this. >> a lot of talk about the impending fiscal cliff. congressional leaders headed to the white house for high-level talks on this. did you hear anything that sounded like a compromise? >> not today. but, look this is a president that clearly feels that he's got a lot of leverage now. and while i heard that in the president today and what he was doing was essentially, and dana can talk more about this than i
1:15 am
can, calling the republican bluff and saying that one thing we all agree on is extending the tax cuts for the middle-class, so let's do that first. republicans believe if they do that, they would lose their leverage, but the president was basically saying, okay, guys. let's do this, and then we'll move on to the section step of the process. but i do agree with david, and by the way, i'm not saying they are picking on susan rice because she's a woman, but i do this it's an interesting turn of phrase by the president "easy target," but these things are heated up so quickly that they better not back up into corners they cannot get out of. >> dana, what do we expect from the meeting on friday? >> the truth of the matter is, they have to have this meeting, sit down eyeball to eyeball and discuss things where the cameras aren't there. however, we know from history, particularly recent history with this president and these congressional leaders that most of the real work is going to get done on the phone with -- in this case probably the house
1:16 am
speaker and the president and their aides. so that is the reality, you know, this is an opening gambit and probably not much more. let me quickly put a button on this idea for filibusters with susan rice if i may, because i spoke to a very good democratic source, and i asked, if she is nominated could you overcome a filibuster, and this source said, if anybody wants to watch two old white guys speaking of course of mccain and graham beat up on a black woman, i am selling tickets. it could get nasty. >> follow me @andersoncooper. up next, why was the president in the dark about the petraeus sex scandal until after the election? the mistress of petraeus that led to the whole scandal. that ahead.
1:17 am
there's the sign to the bullpen.
1:18 am
here he comes.
1:19 am
you wouldn't want your doctor doing your job, the pitch! whoa! so why are you doing his? only your doctor can determine if your persistent heartburn is actually something more serious like acid reflux disease. over time, stomach acid can damage the lining of your esophagus. for many, prescription nexium not only provides 24-hour heartburn relief, but can also help heal acid-related erosions in the lining of your esophagus. talk to your doctor about the risk for osteoporosis-related bone fractures and low magnesium levels with long-term use of nexium. possible side effects include headache, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. other serious stomach conditions may still exist. let your doctor do his job. and you do yours. ask if nexium is right for you. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.
1:20 am
another keeping them honest report. why was president obama kept in the dark about cia drirector david petraeus' affair with paula broadwell until after the election? attorney general eric holder knew in late summer of at fair. that information according to the white house was never passed
1:21 am
until months later. consider this, the director of the c.i.a. was having an extramarital affair, communicating with his mistress via an unsecure e-mail account and potentially putting national security at risk. obama was asked about the investigation today during the news conference. >> i am withholding judgment. with respect to how the entire process surrounding general petraeus came up. we don't have all of the information yet. but i want to say that i have a lot of confidence generally in the fbi and they have a difficult job. and so i'm going to wait and see. >> the white house says there are protocols, that's the word they used, that must be followed when notifying the white house about the criminal investigations. but to be fair, there is a 2007 memo by then attorney general michael mukasey about notifying
1:22 am
the white house and it stays "the department will advise the white house about such criminal or civil enforcement matters only where it's important to the performance of the president's duties and importance to from a law enforcement perspective," it goes on the say, "it is critically important to have frank and expeditious communications relating national security matters, including counterterrorism and counterespionage issues." we are joined by fran townsend,
1:23 am
a member of the cia's external advisory board. fran, have you been talking to sources, what have you learned about possible legal fallout? >> it's interesting, anderson. we understand that paula broadwell consented to the search of her homes, but after a discussion between her lawyers and the fbi, they decided to get a search warrant. we understand that they are reviewing documents, but based on what they've seen so far, they say that the classified material is one, not substantial, two, while it may be a technical violation, it's not egregious. as a result of that, the law enforcement official told me they don't expect there will be a prosecution related to the unauthorized release of classify information, but that ultimately, that's not a decision that the fbi will make. they will make a presentation, they expect to wrap up in the next few days. they may want to do a final interview of paula broadwell, they will present what they have to the justice department and it's ultimately the justice's department decision whether to prosecute or issue a declaration. basically they'll decline to prosecute. that's where they think this will go now. >> all of the talk over the last few days over who may or may not have classified information. if it turns out that no laws were broken, is all of this, the fbi resignation of petraeus basically just over some jealous e-mails? >> yeah, if you look at the
1:24 am
time line just the weeks before the election, petraeus had met with the fbi, and it was obvious they knew about the affair, and he thent we-- he then went to m his boss, the national director of intelligence, jim clapper, i'm told with a heavy heart. advised director petraeus to go ahead and submit his letter of resignation. ultimately, not accused of any wrongdoing, not accused of giving out classified information. never a serious charge against him. so ultimately, it was his decision to go ahead and offer his letter of resignation, and the letter that he issued to the employee of the cia the day he did it he made very clear. i've made mistakes, failed my family and failed you. >> fran, i guess a lot of people are baffled that president obama didn't find out about the affair and possible security concerns until long after the justice department apparently did. now, the president didn't want to talk about it at the press
1:25 am
conference today, but is there any more clarify about why he didn't know sooner? you point to a memo from the justice department that might have insight. >> it's interesting, anderson. the law enforcement official reminded me that the fbi director and his senior team, five mornings a week, briefed the attorney general, the deputy, and the assistant attorney general for the national security division on significant cases and the developments. they also discussed what ought to be briefed to the white house. this was one of those cases. law enforcement official didn't know when, but it was, in fact, briefed to the attorney general with the presumption that that would then be passed onto the white house consistent with the memo you read at the top of the segment. obviously, we don't know what happened. but under that memo the right path would have been from the justice department, to the attorney general to the white house counselor or the deputy there. clearly that didn't happen. when the president talks about the fbi has a protocol, from the fbi's perspective, they followed it, but clearly it didn't make its way up to the president. >> still questions about why the investigation began, whether it
1:26 am
was appropriate for the fbi to even investigate this based on harassing e-mails. if they were even that. fran townsend, appreciate it. new information in the finances of jill kelley and her husband scott, the florida couple caught up in the scandal. they started a cancer charity back in 2005, shortly after they moved to tampa, they dissolved it a couple of years later and they are facing several lawsuits over money problems. drew griffin joins us with more on that. what have you learned? >> another twisted part of the tale. public records show as jill kelley was entertaining top military brass in her backyard, she and her husband, dr. scott kelley, were battling a bank in court, because the bank says they weren't paying their mortgage. the red brick house we've been showing on tampa's exclusive bay shore drive, purchased in 2004 for $1.5 million. four years later, regions bank
1:27 am
filed to for foreclose on the kelleys, because the bank said they haven't sent in a mortgage payment since september 2009. records we've seen show that they owe at least 250,000, probably more. and our search of florida records show there are at least nine other lawsuits involving money and the kelley family. >> a lot of lawsuits. what about the charity the couple began? >> it was called the dr. kelley cancer foundation. started in 2005. charity was formed according to the tax filings "conduct research into efforts to discover ways to improve the quality of life of terminally ill cancer patients. "sure sounded good. they filed a tax return in 2008 and what did it do? it raised $157,000 in contrib e contributions. spent the same amount on expenses. no record of cancer research. no record of care for patients and source told us that the matching amounts of the
1:28 am
charity's first year are very unusual. the kelley charity spent $43,000, and $317,000 on meals and entertainment, and more than $8,000 on automobile expenses and dues and subscriptions of $57,000. $6,0 $6,000. the rest was never explained and we have no idea how the charity raised $157,000 in the first place. it was dissolved in 2007 and dr. kelley cancer foundation never registered with the state of florida, but it retains the 501c 3 status right now with the irs, anderson. >> it seems like every charity you look into, it's just -- it's amazing to me. any reaction on this from the kelleys? >> not really.
1:29 am
we had a source close to the kelleys who said they didn't have enough information to respond. we reached out to the accounting firm that prepared the filing documents, a representative there said they had nothing, nothing to say. >> wow. drew. appreciate it very much. thanks very much. president obama said millions americans didn't vote to him. gary tuchman takes us to a county where president obama only got five votes. why don't voters like him? we will find out more about that just in ahead. ah. fire bad! just have to fire roast these tomatoes. do you churn your own butter too? what? this is going to give you a head start on your dinner. that seems easier sure does who are you?

nationwide, the president tallied more than 62 million votes, but here in this county, he received 5 votes. that's right. just five votes. king county's population is small, but mitt romney winning 139-5, made this the president's worst showing in the u.s. we went to the girl's basketball game in guthrie high school in the county seat to ask mitt romney supporters why there is such distaste with barack obama's presidency. >> i thought he sounded more like a dictator than a president. >> reporter: we went to the local baptist church to a monthly women's club meeting and heard similar sentiments. >> any time anything goes wrong, he blames it on bush, last administration, not his fault. well, now it is his fault. >> reporter: in 2009, just after president obama inaugurated, we spent time in king county, we met charlotte mccauley. who told us -- >> i asked god that he would

israel launched a major air assault on gaza and leaving the door open to a possible ground assault as well. officials calling it a response to rocket attacks fired on gaza. we've seen this before. but this time the israeli forces is live blogging and tweeting the whole thing. this is an image that they tweeted announcing the death of hamas. ahmed jabari was shown in the video. the ivf posted this video jabari was riding in the car circled in yellow. he had been on israel's wanted list for years this was up with
1:44 am
of nearly three dozen attacks launched over eight hours according to hamas. now at least eight other palestinians died and dozen morse wounded. hamas has retaliated by firing more rockets into israel and firing back on twitter, warning israel has "opened the gates of hell" on itself. egypt has recalled its ambassador to israel. in the meantime, the u.s. state department condemned the strikes fired from gaza and supporting israel's right to defend itself. i talked about all of this with sara sidner and also david kirkpatrick of the new york times and cnn's fareed zakaria. what is the latest on the attacks and the failout? >> what we are seeing are more rockets coming into israel. there have been dozens of air strikes as well since the killing of ahmed al jabari, the leader of hamas' military wing, but he is also one of the founders of hamas.
1:45 am
we are talking about a huge blow to hamas, and now the government there in gaza. israel is also telling us, and we are just hearing this from the military spokesperson that they are bringing in reservists, but they are consider iing a ground war, but they have not yet given the go ahead for that, but they are preparing. we know that they have been firing with the air with the air strikes, but we also know that they have been firing from the sea. their ships are anchored just off of the sea there in gaza firing into gaza and according to the residents in gaza that we spoke to said that at one point, it seemed to be raining bombs there in gaza. you can see some of the fires there. a big fallout. and real concern that there will be a full-scale war, something like you saw in 2008. >> they said on twitter, we recommend that no hamas

operatives whether low level or senior leaders show their faces above ground in the days ahead. hamas has promised a response, saying israel opened the gates of hell. >> i'm in cairo right now. what's striking from this point of view is that this is the moment that we have been waiting here for with the new democratically elected islamist government in cairo, we have been waiting for a crisis to come again with the government of egypt, and how will this government respond. this is a government of the muslim brotherhood. they are ideological kin with hamas, there has been support for hamas for years, but at the same time, they are now deeply invested in maintaining a climate of stability. to get this country back on track and how egypt plays its cards will play a big role. egypt has, in fact, i think hamas will go out.
1:47 am
but if egyptians are telling hamas, we got the muslim brotherhood and egypt is telling hamas, we have to find a way out of this with some stability intact, that is a different outkom >> fareed, how do you see this? . >> no question, it's justified. the attacks were out of gaza by hamas, were completely -- they had gone crazy in temps of the scope, intensity, and hamas was openly taking credit for them, rather than disavowing them. the problem, netanyahu people, bibi and barack, they have a tactical approach. they are hitting back and remember, they have been trying the do this with israel has invaded gaza and they have economically choked gaza, and they have succeeded. they have overwhelming force. what is the strategy to deal with gaza? how does this help israel in its long-term strategy? how does it play out with the regional strategy where israel's relations with egypt have deteriorated.
1:48 am
